I'll be the first to say I'm not perfect. If you personally know me you know my story & what I fight with on a daily basis. I could choose to say why me and waller in self-pity but I refuse to. Knowing our weakness is what makes us truly strong. 🖤

¡Valencia Te Amo! ❤️💛❤️ Wow, what a city, what a race, what a experience! Today was always going to be tough given the ridiculous schedule recently, but hey.. gave it all I had on dead AF legs and still got a sub 3, so gotta be happy with that! HUGE kudos to @joe_spraggins and @sarahplace1 for smashing their PB.. respect ✌🏻 I’m off to find my bed and sleep for a veryyyyy long time! Till next week people! 😍
Como me han dicho hace poco, esta distancia es como la vida misma, con altibajos, alegrías y penas. A pesar de no haber logrado mi objetivo, tengo la tranquilidad de haber peleado cada paso, con una sonrisa y con lágrimas...
Todo iba rodado hasta el km 24 ( 3'50min/km ) justo en ese km las rampas en los gemelos han comenzado, es la primera vez en mi vida que tengo rampas😖, a partir de ahí a sido una lucha contra mi mismo y el crono, he parado unas 5 veces a estirar y pedir reflex, pero nada....
Finalmente he cruzado meta llorando en 2'56h (2min + de mi MMP)
De este finde me quedo con la gente a la que he podido conocer, sois unos cracks!! y por supuesto con los momentos con @cristinacanomontserrat y Einar, eso sí que no tiene precio😍😍

BELIEVE - Today I proved to myself that I can. Buzzing to have smashed the @maratonvalencia in 04:29:25 😊
Anyone that has seen the InstaLive and followed my journey will know how much this meant to me.
All the injuries would have probably left me giving up on this, but the new me wasn’t having that. I worked my arse off in the Gym and done everything I could to get race read! Weights, Bike, Rowing and no excuses.
And I started to believe in ME! I believed I could get Sub 2 the other week and I believed I would smash it today and I did!
I’m absolutely buzzing and what better way to do a Marathon than with an absolutely amazing squad of friends who all killed it today👊🏻 Every one of them owned the race today and now it’s time to celebrate 🍺
So much love for this squad ❤️ Special mention will go out to the absolute Legend I had the pleasure of running most of the Marathon with today @citygirlcat but I will save that for another post ❤️ There will be shit loads more Valencia posts in the next few days but for now I just wanna say thanks for all the support and messages from you all. So many of you believed in me and you don’t know how much that meant. I now believe in me and today I done something that the old me wouldn’t have thought possible 👊🏻 Much Love ❤️ Ps Also massssssive shout out to @dmshockman who got her dream of a BQ! She didn’t just get it, she absolutely smashed it! 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 So pleased for her! She so deserved this 😊

What a day 💕 10 mile run with @erdonahey • Boxing class with my @lululemon team • Asked @shermansally & @coachrtb to be our ambassador!! • Tracked amazingly strong people running Philly, like our athlete @jbavaro310 who got a 21 min PR! • Had fun at work (and saw @shann_ferg!) • And now drinking wine relaxing with family || Life is good.
